This piece uses the loops that Hal McGee uploaded to Archive.org in late 2010 ("Hal McGee Collaboration Audio Material" http://www.archive.org/details/HalMcgeeCollaborationAudioMaterial). He put up sixty one minute loops for audio artists to use in his International Email Audio Art Project, http://www.halmcgee.com/IEAAP.html, or any other project they would have in mind. I have known Hal since the mid 1990's, we have collaborated on several projects during that time and I thought that I would do something different with these loops. I created "One" which is an hour long piece. This was no simple stringing the loops one after the other, hardly. I spent four weeks (started 12/28/10 finished 1/22/11) reworking the loops, placing them with utmost care among one hundred and sixty tracks in Acid, with panning points numbering in the thousands. I feel I have created one of my best "noise" compositions to this date.
Everything I am as far as noise goes for the past thirty years has been poured into "One". It is a sonic journey that must be experienced in its whole, with full attention. This is not background noise. Headphone listeners will truly
appreciate all the finer points of production and while headphones are recommended, they are not necessary. Play this at as loud a volume as you can.
Click on SEE ALL FILES in the bottom, right section for the CD and/or cassette artwork, also for the zip files I created from the original wav files. This includes flac.zip, mp3.zip, ogg.zip and wav.zip. The encoding for these files was set as high as possible the file type (except for the .wav file type).
